It took hard work and lots of discipline, but I did manage to finally finish this book ~ Under the Covers
Lara has been looking forward to her vacation to Cancun, but what should be a dream holiday turns into a nightmare when she is kidnapped by the mysterious and sexy Max. The heat rises between them, even as their situation gets worse, winding up with them both being stuck in the jungle with two bad guys and seemingly no way out.
It took hard work and lots of discipline, but I did manage to finally finish this book. Not matter how exasperated I get with a book, I don’t like to leave them unread, and Wild Orchids definitely tested my patience. I realise this isn’t a very positive start to a review, but I didn’t get on with this book very well.
Because I didn’t like this book very much, I am going to keep this short and sweet, I am not going to harp on about what annoyed me. Suffice to say, Lara’s actions and reactions puzzled me, and Max was okay when he wasn’t being a ass hat, which was most of the time.
Wild Orchids wasn’t for me, I have seen a lot of positive reviews on this book, so maybe I was having a bad day…but I am not going to risk a reread.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
